### Title

Add Minutes to Time

### Post

Really dumb question: This seems like it should be very easy, but so far I'm stumped.

Given 2 fields

1. being the start time of an event,

2. the other being the number of minutes something took (as entered by a user)

how would you add the minutes to the start time, I keep thinking the min.s need to be converted to time, but not sure how.

Thanks in advance, xandra

If you enter time as minutes in a number field, this calculation can be used to produce the end time of the event:

StartTime + 60 * EventTimeInMinutes

Select Time as the calculation's return type.,

This works because time fields store time as an integer that counts the number of seconds elapsed since midnight. All you have to do is compute the correct number of seconds to add to your start time.
